let's talk data manipulation, scientific integrity, and public ignorance!

i should definitely be able to get 15 pages of content out of this.

3 presentations in 3 classes, in the next 3 days.

also, i have a paper due in 17 days, and i haven't picked a topic. i need to perform an ethical analysis of some current environmental conflict. if you know of any interesting environmental conflicts, please let me know! i'm surrounded by this stuff, but i've been drawing mental blanks for weeks.

i also need to find a job. i've been so busy with school that i've neglected my job hunt. i knew this would happen, but it is unpleasant regardless. i'm very open on location, but i would love to stay in the NYC metro area. it is just so amazing living here.

So, I have exactly one month left until the end of finals week. In that time, I have an insurmountable list of things to do. Also, all of my group project team members want to meet much too frequently.

Kelly is out getting me cookies because I felt sad tonight. He is really great sometimes!

Just got done with midterms, semi-officially. I still have some mapping work that needs doing. I've never had midterms stretch out so long (3+ weeks), and the stress is killer. I will be thrilled when this semester is through!

I did get a chance to go see La Roux in concert on Monday, the 26th. So incredible! I am biased, however. I was so glad she came to NYC- she canceled her Chicago date and her Boston date due to illness, and she was still pretty sick on stage. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUsbpmQ9-mc)

I've also been tearing through the new Wheel of Time novel. It is excellent- I've really enjoyed Sanderson's other novels, and his writing has obviously improved with each new one. He is a bit weak on the description (especially compared to Jordan!), but his straightforward, satisfying writing style compensates for that well.

I went to my 2nd karate class today. It was so much fun!

I've wanted to learn karate for a long time, but I've always said "I don't have the time," or come up with other excuses. Well, I don't have the time now, but I'm going to do it anyway! Booyah, time!

We saw John Oliver from the Daily Show on Columbia University last Thursday.

Spent today wandering Central Park doing the touristy stuff. Saw some sites- the Balto statue, the Bethesda fountain, and the Imagine mosaic inside Strawberry Fields.

There were some great street performers- drummers, a flutist, an accordian player, and some guys with guitars singing Beatles songs. There were three really neat gymnast/dancing performers who got shut down by the park management- I don't really know why. They were doing incredible flips and twirls and break dancing type stuff. They drew a huge crowd.

We had some sushi and lo mein afterwards on Columbus- I think from now on we'll probably just get sushi in Uptown, since there are cheaper places with better quality.

Now we're back home, to unwind for the evening. I have another final tomorrow- this time in Climatology, which was a fun class.
